Mayo Chiki!

I see a lot of reviews complaing about episode 13. Please accept that this is undoubtably a 12 episode run with one bonus episode that has been added at the end.

The relationship between the main two characters is nice and the adding of the rest of the harem is well done as the main female character is the one doing the hiring. The bunny character is supposed to be annoying and then endearing and works well for me. Any comparisons to the Shield Hero is lazy as there is only a tenuous link in the substance but the tone of the show is completely different, The Shield Hero is about the suffering of...
